cam in russia. >> apparently in russia it's common in your morning commute to involve a hatchet dispute, fighter chopper fly by, or, i don't know, tank! how unfazed are russians? >> and the cows, they just got up and went on their way across the street. unbelievable. good day. jim will bring us more on that in a few moments. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. if you ever wondered just why comprehensive immigration reform is such a heavy lift for lawmakers, just ask john mccain. he got an earful at a town hall meeting in arizona last night. >> why didn't the army go down there and stop them? because the only thing that stops them, i'm afraid to say and it's too damn bad, but is a gun. that's all that will stop them. >> the border's 2,000 miles long, sir. i don't know how much troops and army people you think would have been required. i don't know how many you think will be required, but i'll give you expert information that shows you probably maybe you're talking about 2 million soldiers. you want to round up 11 million people and send them back to their country? you're not
. that will involve russia, and nothing will be solved in syria without the assistance in russia. meeting with mr. lavarov will be important as well. then he has to understand that the entire region, qatar and others, they had real security interests involved as far as iran is concerned, and they have security issues that we need to help fulfill. the release of assistance to the u.a. saudi arabia. these are issues affecting syria. they're also affecting iran and israel, and are finally, of course, we have to watch what's taking place in eswript. we don't see democracy unfolding in the way it should, and jobs aren't created, and then the people who have been on the streets are going to be revolting again. here highly educated and unemployed. that's not -- >> not at all. briefly, just p a few seconds we have left. the whole cyber war. the seeber attacks. i know you know china very well. how tough should the president be? is it time to start really putting this front and center? >> we have to put it front and center. not just with china where, with russia wra. this notion that somehow china will be
of policy from the united states. >> from the u.s. now, there is no agreement with russia. russia is rearming assad, propping up the regime, and that was the contentious part of today's meeting. but what kerry seemed to be hinting at is that under pressure from the brits and certainly from the syrian opposition which initially said that they would not meet in rome with him in a couple of days, he called them and persuaded them saying show up, we've got something for you. this meeting will be worth your while. what he said to us is this is a right moment. it is a new secretary of state. it is a president on a second term. wait and see what happens. now -- >> you were staying that hillary clinton, leon panetta both wanted to arm the syrian rebel wrshz. >> arm some of them. >> the president vetoed it. you think he is telegraphing something. >> i think he thinks he is telegraphing something. i think he may think he has more running room than he has. we've seen that the white house really controls foreign policy more than the state department. hillary clinton didn't challenge that. she
's reigning skuds down. it's horrified the west, everyone except perhaps russia. >> most military experts agree if the west wanted to help, they would impose a no-fly zone, not allow syrian helicopters to bomb. >> the white house isn't there yet. >> the president is defiantly not there. he seems to see syria -- he might not be wrong. he sees it as insoluble. you can't solve it. the american public is not interested. you see this in poll after poll. they are not interested in getting deeper into it than we already are. there's no pressure on the administration except from the syrian rebels to do anything. >> and from john mccain and former senator kerry. and others. he wasn't as forward leaning as mccain and others. in the senate we are arguing we had to rethink this. hillary clinton and leon panetta and chairman dempsey and others argued and the president rejected it. >> that's the governoring reality. john kerry wants to do x, y and z but he works for the president now. i don't think you are going to see that much different. you are going to see the seron rebels getting something from am
to syria. these are all issues where the u.s. and china and russia for that matter have to find common ground and cooperate. now, cyber security absolutely now is in the president's top talking points, but whether or not he confronts them and says nothing else can work before we solve this cyber security problem, i don't actually think the administration is yet there. >> and, in fact, may never be there. let's just look who is holding our debt. just another minor issue. >> that's right. >> michael, thanks very much sfwroosh my pleasure. >> and coming up next, in the politico briefing, rick scott's surprise reversal drawing fire in florida. [ male announcer ] marie callender's finally found a way to get her oven baked taste straight from the microwave. like her oven roasted chicken baked in a rich, creamy alfredo sauce. she calls them her new comfort bakes. marie callender's. it's time to savor. humans. even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. at liberty mutual insurance, we understand. that's why our auto policies come with accident
change in russia's policy? >> well, i think that one has to look back and remember that hillary clinton had exactly the same experience with the rebels in libya. there was a period of time where the rebels used every meeting as a potential negotiating ploy for what they wanted to extract from britain, france, and the united states, and you also have, i would say, greater diversity in the syrian opposition and more inconsistencies in the broad syrian opposition than you even had in libya. libya was not great. what we're seeing is standard fare. it's not anything unusual. i think where it goes is that john kerry is going to go in and, you know, basically offer a lot of resolve, perhaps more posturing, but the syrian knot continues to be something that i think that the president wants to remain from being deeply engaged in, and i don't think he is going to turn the switch on for heavy arms transfers to the opposition, so i suspect more of the same with a little bit more toughing rhetoric that assad needs to leave, but when it comes to what the syrian rebels most want, nothing really new. >
